Free as in freedom : Richard Stallman's crusade for free software by Sam Williams( Book )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in English and held by 667 libraries worldwide
"Why would Microsoft executives lie awake at night worrying about the antics of a long-haired, renegade hacker named Richard Stallman? Why do some of the smartest programmers on the planet revere this man as "St. Ignucius"? And how did a stubborn, precocious boy obsessed with creating the perfect model rocket grow up to play David to the software industry's Goliath?" "Free as in Freedom traces this eccentric genius's evolution from gifted, solitary child to teen outcast to revered and reviled crusader. Through extensive interviews with Stallman, his family, fellow hackers, and tech-industry heavyweights, author Sam Williams crafts a portrait of a freedom fighter who has, in fact, changed the world."--BOOK JACKET

From artificial intelligence's pioneers John McCarthy and Marvin Minsky, to futurist authors Ray Kurzweil and Hans Moravec, to software architects Bill Joy and Jaron Lanier, Arguing A.I. introduces readers to the people participating in the current debate, both proponents and critics of A.I. who are changing the way computers "think" and the way we think about computers."
Richard Stallman et la révolution du logiciel libre by Richard Stallman( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in French and held by 117 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couverture indique :"Cette biographie autorisée de Richard Stallman éclaire sans complaisance la vie de ce personnage autant décrié qu'encensé qui a révolutionné l'histoire du logiciel en fondant le mouvement pour le logiciel libre. Amendée avec humour par Richard Stallman lui-même sans rien perdre de ses qualités critiques, elle retrace au travers d'anecdotes savoureuses la jeunesse d'un surdoué, les événements qui l'ont mené à la genèse de la licence GNU GPL, et sa lutte pour protéger l'ouvrage logiciel et en faire reconnaître le rang de patrimoine mondial."
